I don't know how you configured pf, but since I use the black list
fromhttp://www.sa-blacklist.stearns.org/sa-blacklist/sa-blacklist.current.sendmail-access,
I reduced drastically the spam that reaches SpamAssassin.

The key point with such black list is that you must trust the list, as
there is no place for false positive.

Bests,

Olivier
